on the toughest gun laws in the nation, but in congress senate sxwrort leader harry reid pours cold water on an assault weapons ban unless the house acts first. >> let's be realistic. in the senate we're going to do what we think will get through the house, and i don't think going through these eyeragses to say we've done something. >> mother of ben wheeler tells rachel maddow that action on guns should trump politics. >> it's not just republican, democrat -- >> no, no. >> independent. that is the thing that is just blowing my mind that i feel like it's really not about your party. >> it's not. it's not. >> i really feel like it's about our children. >>> coming clean. disgraced pro cyclist lance armstrong confesses to oprah winfrey he used performance enhancing drugs to win the tour de france. >> we were mesmerized and riveted by some of his answers. >> could he face criminal charges? >>> critical vote. chuck schumer says he will back chuck hagel as defense secretary. secretary of state hillary clinton with a long-time ally, liberia's president ellen johnson surleaf. >> it's important to
moving forward with gun control measures but at the federal level it seems like a tough sell. harry reid doubts such a measure to ban assault weapons would get through the house. what does that mean for national gun control laws? are we at a stalemate? >> i don't believe we are. it comes down to what are we going to be able to get bipartisan support for in the congress? and there are three things that i believe are possible to get across the aisle support. my major focus has been since january 8th on mental health services and awareness and i'll be dropping a bill today that will move in that direction called the mental health first aid act so that's one thing that i believe is possible. there seems to be some cross unanimity across the aisle on mental health services and my bill will hopefully be one of the first steps in that direction. >> you met with vice president biden as part of a task force convened by the president. the vice president was supposed to deliver his recommendations today to the president, but he delayed that. why the holdup? >> i'm not sure i could tell you why the
that senate majority leader harry reid said likely wouldn't pass the house. you see the president wants you to keep trying, harry. the american people do too. while you're at it, maybe congress could follow new york state's lead. because today governor andrew cuomo signed into law the toughest package of gun measures in the nation. the new law expands the state's assault weapons ban. requires background checks to buy ammunition. increase penalties for multiple gun crimes. creates a statewide gun registration database and requires mental health professionals to report patients they believe are likely to harm themselves or others. nowhere in the list do you hear about feds coming to your house to take away your form of entertainment. but as new york congressman steve israel said today more federal and state actions are needed too. >> if those weapons can permeate new york's borders, it makes it tougher. >> john: for more, i'm now joined by a key figure in the guns debate, virginia democratic congressman bobby scott is the ranking member of the crime terrorism and homeland security subcommitte
at least that harry reid is not going to make his democrats who are up in 2014 walk the plank on a tough gun vote. so the house guys are saying look, we'll take it up when reid passes it knowing full well there's a small chance that larry reedye harry reid is going to pass a robust bill. if you saw some of the comments this past week from senators like max baucus, mary landrieu, mark begich who are up next year, you see why a lot of the house republicans are sort of smiling and saying we'll take it up when it comes over from the senate, wink, wink. >> gene, i guess it's going to be quite a while before i download profiles of courage volume 2 from the united states senate? >> i think it's going to be a while. look, it's been a month since newtown. and i think it's -- i think you make the case, it's unconscionable to do nothing, right, until the next newtown. i think there's a resonance out in the country. i think people get that this is something we really need to address and get it on an emotional level. but no, you're not going to be reading the updated profiles in courage out of the se
are the guys who have to lead. they have got to get nancy pelosi and harry reid to bring along democrats, and we've -- >> harry reid is tough on this. he's pretty pro gun. >> well, he's going to have to listen to his constituents. i think he will. i think you're going to find in all of these places, when i talk to people around the country, there's just enough is enough. you see people who have been big gun rights advocates all of a sudden saying, well, we can't keep doing this. >> mr. mayor, thank you. >> you're welcome. thank you for having me. >> coming up, manti te'o's, a twitter war for the record books and for the ridiculist. ♪ you know my heart burns for you... ♪ i'm up next, but now i'm singing the heartburn blues. hold on, prilosec isn't for fast relief. cue up alka-seltzer. it stops heartburn fast. ♪ oh what a relief it is! >>> time now for the ridiculist. tonight, we're adding the twitter war between donald trump and deadspin. this week, deadspin broke the story about the notre dame linebacker who had a fake girlfriend, and trump was apparently imp pressed. he tweeted th

. >> why does it seem harry reid is suddenly back tracking on fist filibuster reform. >> he is a man of the senate. russ feingold remember the real progressive members will tell you harry reid is a liberal guy. he's good. it is not that he doesn't want to open the door for getting things done but he truly is imbedded in this senate culture. >> in this system, this progresses. right? >> folks driving the reform tend to be the younger members. it's just a reality. >> anybody can look at the senate and know that et cetera broken. >> they are in a week position. this is a week position for them. >> for republicans? >> they lost two seats in a cycle where they should have won five or six. >> bill: right. >> a million.4. gerrymanned gerrymannedering is the only reason they kept the house. their marginalization is clear. the only thing they can do is secretly behind closed doors stop things from happening. we complete the cycle of 2012. >> which is why again i don't understand why harry reid doesn't see this is the moment to act on filibuster reform. we will
? harry reid has said they can pass this in the senate but doesn't think it could pass the house. is the president basically saying look, forget assault weapons ban, i'm not going to get it so i'm going to go for these 19 things? >> you know, i worked as you know for president clinton and democrats have a kind of ancestral memory of when they passed the assault weapons ban and the brady bill and the tremendous political price that democrats in congress paid. i think probably in addition to the substance of it, one of the things the white house wants to do is to begin to break the idea that the nra has such omniscient complete power over government, make the progress he can make and that will actually help in the legislative fights, not drain away the energy. >> the nra is seen as all powerful in so many ways. we have a really great report on that in just a moment. let me just ask one more question. it still seems to me aside from all the new things you can do, we can discuss what those are, and the nuances of it, there is this issue with the fact there are a lot of laws on the bo
. top senate democrat harry reid sounded optimistic about its passage. >> tentatively on a path to citizenship which has been a stumbling block. we need to promote bipartisan bills quicker than you think. >> you are confident this will amount to something substantial? >> we'll do something significant. >> then again, there's always the lower chamber. according to texas congressman lamar smith, any bill with a pathway to citizenship will have a hard time passing. phil, the georgia republican who weighed in so very eloquently on todd aken's rape comments this weekend, told the "new york times" he remains opposed to amnesty of any kind. joining us now is telemundo jose diaz. it is always a good day when you are on this program, my friend. great to see you. >> thank you so much. thank you so much. >> jose, let me ask you -- >> if they think that this is an issue that's going to go away, they're wrong. >> let me ask you, jose. in terms -- we've been talking ad naseum about skisms within the g.o.p. obama is preparing to prioritize immigration reform on his second term agenda, a move t
harry reid, the democratic leader in the senate, and those senators i just mentioned all signaling that the assault weapons ban is not likely to get through and will vote against it. will it be a success for the president if the assault weapons ban doesn't pass? >> i'm not going to predict what may or may not happen. the president put forward a package and has taken actions on his own on mental health and background checks but legislative proposals that will protect our kids and gun safety. we don't expect it all to pass in its current form but think there's elements that are critical. i think there will be a big spotlight shone on this. i think the american people are paying a lot of attention to this debate. >> and he will twist the arms of democrats? >> we will twist them, democrats and republicans, engage the american people and at the least have votes on this in the house and senate. i'm confident some of the measures you mentioned, universal background checks i think there are enough votes -- >> that could be the trade-off democratic senators vote against the assault weapons

's dialogue. >> the bottom line is that harry reid is concerned about asking democratic members, especially in red states to walk the plank on a sensitive issue like this. >> reporter: that's exactly it. a lot of people look at harry read and know that he is from a pro gun state. he's in nevada. he's a gun owner himself. but it's not necessarily about his politics or personal advocacy for guns. it the political reality that never mind the republicans, democrats, a lot of democrats who are in vulnerable, political situations right now may not want to do anything until, unless they think it can actually get to the president for a signature. >> dana bash at the capitol, thanks so much for that. >>> a spokesman for the national rifle association tells cnn there's been an unprecedented spike in membership. about 250,000 new members have signed up. for more on the challenge president obama faces on pushing comprehensive gun reforms through the congress, i'm joined by chief political analyst gloria borger. when you look at this in a nutshell, the question arises early what is better to sort of put

for congress. add it all up. >> right. >> like harry reid's great disappointing act. harry reid is not very popular at this point, either. hiding division among democrats by turning to the world's least conservative body. they haven't done anything and no budget. that's what's interesting about that great congress number, you add up people who hate congress from both sides. >> yeah. 81% is a big number. that is the one thang that ordinary americans and both parties, independents, as well, agree on. >> not just the nasty tea party republicans in the house. anyway, john, thank you. your haircut looks good. >> thanks, man. >> you're welcome. and duke looked good yesterday. >> i was going to say, there are some of us who were not watching the oprah interview because we had important things to do. >> i had to wash my hair and my nails. >> you guys get a second chance tonight. >> like him. >> like you're giving him. >> go ahead. >>> coming up, the story behind the drop in intel shares, we're going to talk about it. plus, we're gearing up for ow newsmaker of the morning. we have morgan stanley's c
